Cash book and inventory of the Vaca Valley and Clear Lake Railroad.
The Vaca Valley Railroad was incorporated in 1869 to build from Elmira to Vacaville, California. It was later sold at auction and extended from Vacaville to Winters, with right of way acquired to Madison. In February 1877 the Vaca Valley and Clear Lake was incorporated and operated under that name until 1888, when it became a part of the Northern Railway. This company completed the line up the Capay Valley to Rumsey in July 1888. The Vaca Valley and Clear Lake was controlled first by the California Pacific and later by the Central Pacific and Southern Pacific.
